FANG
DOOR 1
51.25" high x 23.5" wide x1.5" thick
Gabon
$1000

This door has a large hole but is now stable.  There is a very slight warp to the door of about 1/4".

The Fang are not known for their doors, but for their masks, reliquary guardian figures and heads (Bieri). The carving on this door imitates the proportions and feel of Bieri figures and heads
